Frequently Asked Questions

Perhaps you have a few questions. Take a look at some that were commonly asked below. If your question isn't answered here, we're happy to help. Please email Jessica Emmerich and she will respond with the appropriate resources. 

If Providers Are Only Seeing Managed Care Patients, Do They Still Need to Check eMOMED for Eligibility? 

Yes, eMOMED gives providers the most accurate eligibility information and tells providers which Managed Care plan a patient is enrolled in and whether they have any other insurances.

Why Is It Important to Know Whether the Patient Has Other Insurances? 

It's important to check patient eligibility and insurance on their date of service because you are required to bill their primary insurance before submitting their Medicaid claim. 

If Participants Have a Managed Care Plan, Does That Change the Services for Which They Are Eligible? 

No, participants are eligible for the same services (determined by their Medical Eligibility code) whether they are enrolled with MO HealthNet or a Managed Care plan.
